Abstract

We discuss a fully relativistic Landau Fermi liquid theory based on the quantum hadrodynamics effective field picture of nuclear matter. From the linearized kinetic equations we get the dispersion relations of the propagating collective modes. We focus our attention on the dynamical effects of the interplay between scalar and vector channel contributions. An interesting "mirror" structure in the form of the dynamical response in the isoscalar-isovector degree of freedom is revealed, with a complete parallelism in the role respectively played by the compressibility and the symmetry energy. All that seems to support the introduction of an explicit coupling to the scalar-isovector channel of the nucleon-nucleon interaction. In particular we study the influence of this coupling (to a delta-meson-like effective field) on the collective response of asymmetric nuclear matter (ANM). Interesting contributions are found on the propagation of isovectorlike modes at normal density and on an expected smooth transition to isoscalarlike oscillations at high baryon density. Important "chemical" effects on the neutron-proton structure of the mode are shown. For dilute ANM we have the isospin distillation mechanism of the unstable isoscalarlike oscillations, while at high baryon density we predict an almost pure neutron wave structure of the propagating sounds.
